Summary

Today, counseling in an elementary school setting is both exciting and extremely challenging. Never before has there been such a high need for counselors to work with such a young and large portion of the population. The Person-Centered Approach to groups in the school setting works well in counseling because of the high level of empathy and understanding necessary for the healing climate of the group to occur. The value of this approach seems to be especially applicable to the first two stages of group therapy. During the third stage, however, a more cognitive-behavioral approach seems to enhance the work being done. In the final stage, a mixture of both approaches works well. One of the reasons the Person-Centered Approach works so well with elementary-level students is the inclusion of the issue of trust. Students will establish acceptance and trust in the leader, or the group, and then in themselves. Probably the most powerful experience for those in the group is being understood and accepted by others who are also involved in revealing their feelings to one another. The Person-Centered Approach and the Cognitive-Behavioral Approach can be linked together to work very effectively with children in the elementary school setting. (A case example of David, a sixth-grader who was doing poorly in school and was referred for group counseling is included.) (ABL)
